Han Geng, Janice Man struggle for air in dystopian wasteland drama Hard Memory

4773_63720

Could this be the first hard sci-fi drama to succeed?

Sci-fi drama  Hard Memory: Prisoner Under Air 失忆之城之空气的囚徒 tells of a city in need of memories and oxygen. In the near future,  the populace are imprisoned in a walled “city”  as their memories are farmed by the ruling class. I imagine they must really need oxygen outside of the walled city since not giving people enough oxygen is probably not the best way to get memories.
